    Using an HU card is illegal and implies theft of services.

    Please do not discuss it here.

    Not trying to be a dick here, but why bother leaving UTV area open? I understand why you're doing what you're doing. Just seems nine out of ten people who post in here are looking for UTV hacks. Some probably used to get them here also. I've googled for UTV stuff and this site is always popping up. So I can imagine it will be same thing, over and over.

    Thanks for the explanation.

    Here is a cut n paste from the cover of this forum:


    UltimateTV Hacking (1 Viewing)
    All info and discussion on hacking the UltimateTV goes in here


    Maybe, just maybe people wouldn't post HACKING questions in here if it wasn't stated as such the place to HACK the UTV.

    Understand??

    I don't think you understand. Hacking does not mean stealing. You can hack a device to add capabilities that it wasn't intended to do or add functionality without hacking it for theft of service.

    Here's one example that comes to mind...

    If hacking=stealing to you, maybe this isn't the right forum for you.

    phrase the question differently

    You should have asked about downgrading your firmware to version 3.5, which WAS compatible with the HU card.

    I'm not sure why on earth anyone would want to do that, though. It's slow, has memory leaks, and is missing nice features that v3.7 offers.

    Humm, that doesn't seem to fall under the category of "hacking a device to add capabilities that it wasn't intended to do or add functionality.", now does it?

    The question is allowed, however.

    Go figure.

    personally, the folders in 3.7 drove me NUTS! it was worth the 3.5 hassle to avoid them. (NOT having to recompile the extract/insert/network/convert utils was also nice)

    the 3.5/3.7 images contain copyright code so they can't be shared or linked to from here - those pesky MS lawyers...

    folks solely interested in dtv hacking and/or too lazy/rude to READ (forum terms of use + info allready here) won't learn anything
